Fountain’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Liquid Hair Food
The colour of this oil is golden brown in colour as with any authentic Jamaican Black Castor Oil. However it is not accompanied by the usual burnt smell or sticky, thick consistency and as such will not block pores. Fountain’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Liquid Hair Food, is mixed with three very vital components which enhance and compliment its effectiveness. Along with the brown 100% pure and authentic Jamaican Black Castor Oil, this is mixed with Jojoba Oil, Peppermint & Eucalytus sourced directly from Jamaica. Castor Oil contains Ricinoleic acid and Undecylenic acid and many other omega-9-fatty acids which contribute to its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal effects.Jamaican Black Castor Oil also contains these phytonutrients that help destroy many types of bacteria, fungi and other parasites that can cause scalp and skin problems like dandruff. Castor oil is extracted from the seeds of the castor oil plant (ricinus communis). The extracted oil is pale yellow and transparent when cold pressed. However, this 100% authentic Jamaican Black Castor Oil is made by using the traditional Jamaican method of extracting the oil. This involves roasting the beans then, pulverizing them in a mortar. Water is then added to the “mashed “beans, before being slow boiled on a wood fire. The finished result is a pure, unadulterated, thick, pungent, dark brown oil, hence the term “Jamaican Black Castor Oil”.
Not Sticky, Not Thick
With the incorporation of Jojoba Oil, Fountain Jamaican Black Castor Oil Hair Food is not thick or sticky and as the oil is not as thick it is easier to massage in.
No Unpleasant Smell
Peppermint (and Eucalyptus) gives the oil a fresh more pleasant scent. These also enhance Fountain Jamaican Black Castor Oil’s ability to stimulate circulation in the scalp. Bringing much needed nutrients to the hair follicles.
Wont Clog Pores
Leaving 100% pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil on the scalp can encourage rather than fight bacterial and fungal growth. Our sebaceous glands (in the scalp) also produce oil, a dirty scalp along with oil build up will clog up the pores and can actually cause skin and scalp problems. Using this oil incorrectly has resulted in many reporting that Jamaican Black Castor Oil causes itchy scalp and irritation. Fountain has solved this problem by including Jojoba Oil in their formulation. The addition of Jojoba Oil to Fountain’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil enhances the benefits of this castor oil by dissolving sebum build up, restoring the correct amount of sebum on the scalp or skin and creating a healthier scalp. Jojoba Oil is a natural moisturizer and conditioner for the hair since its structure is similar to the natural oil produced by the sebaceous glands in the scalp.
A perfect combination of oils working together to create a healthy scalp and encourage growth. Fountain Jamaican Black Castor Oil Liquid Hair Food’s unique combination is not sticky, not smelly, not too thick and will not clog pores!
